The Federal Government has appealed to the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to shelve its industrial action and seek negotiation.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made the appeal on Monday while addressing journalists in Abuja. “I want to use this opportunity to appeal to ASUU to put off this strike in the name of the country and in view of what the situation is,” he said.

According to the Minister, the well-being of the education sector of the country was solely dependent on oil-generated revenues of the government.

While reiterating the Federal Government’s commitment to easing the pains of the striking lecturers, he called on ASUU to resume talks.
